Cooper named PSAC Eastern Division Defensive Player of the Week

BLOOMSBURG-Sophomore cornerback Jesse Cooper (Sewell, NJ/Washington Twp.) has been named PSAC Eastern Division Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against East Stroudsburg this past Saturday.

Cooper's strong defensive effort helped the Huskies rally for a win over East Stroudsburg, 35-28. He made three tackles, 1.5 for loss, blocked an extra point, broke up two passes and with the Huskies leading by just one in the fourth period, returned an interception 50 yards for a score putting Bloomsburg in front by eight with just under six minutes left in the game.

It marks the first time this season that a Bloomsburg defensive player has been honored.

The Huskies return to action when they host Cheyney on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
